12/7/2017 Project Update
TCL&P’s contractor, C.C. Power, LLC will begin the rebuild portion of the project in the neighborhoods located at the base of Old Mission Peninsula near Northwestern Michigan College starting the week of December 11, 2017. The delay was the result of the unforeseen deployment of our contract crews to assist with restoring power following Hurricane Irma.
The work will involve the installation of the underground cable along with placement of pad mounted transformers (green boxes) which were already mapped and communicated to affected property owners at the start of the overall project. The work is expected to be complete by January 19, 2018.
10/09/2017 Project Update
Please be aware that TCL&P’s contractor, C.C. Power, LLC will be working near Peninsula Drive and Garfield Avenue this week as part of the Circuit Rebuild Project. No lane closures are anticipated at this time.
Crews from C.C. Power, LLC were recently deployed to assist with restoring power following Hurricane Irma which caused work on the Circuit Rebuild Project to temporarily halt. However, they have returned and are working towards getting the project completed by the end of the year. Most of the work west of Garfield Avenue is complete.
C.C. Power, LLC crews continue to work in the neighborhoods west of Garfield Avenue.
Beginning in July, C.C. Power, LLC has informed us that they have moved up their start time and will begin rebuild work in sections located at the base of Old Mission Peninsula, east of Peninsula Drive. Completion is now expected the end of September 2017.
As with most electric utility projects, brief outages may be needed in order to complete the job. TCL&P will communicate with customers in order to coordinate times as they are needed.
Traverse City Light & Power (TCL&P) has identified distribution line and equipment that needs to be rebuilt. The Circuit Rebuild Project (Project) is broken up into six sections along the City’s east side, north of Eighth Street, including the base of Old Mission Peninsula. Click here to view a map of the project areas.
WHY: The equipment, power lines and utility poles are aged and need to be replaced.
WHEN & WHAT TO EXPECT:
The Project is tentatively expected to begin May 1st in the neighborhoods west of Garfield Avenue with completion expected by September 30th.
For those sections located at the base of the Peninsula, TCL&P’s boring contractor, Roemer Utility Services, will be installing conduit beginning May 1st in preparation for undergrounding the primary power line. However, the overall rebuild portion of the Project will not begin until early fall with completion expected by December 31st, 2017.
The impact to property owners should be limited as most work will be done within the existing utility corridor. However, scheduled power outages may be needed and TCL&P and our contractor, C.C. Power, LLC, will work closely with affected property owners to keep them informed.
The Project is consistent with the utility’s mission to provide safe, reliable and competitively priced electricity to its customers and TCL&P is committed to keeping the inconvenience to you at a minimum.
